Analogous colors are any three to four colors that sit next to each other on the color wheel. Analogous colors, when used together, create a sense of harmony.
Transition is the process of changing from one state to another. A Time lapse video is a recording of changes that occur in single frames over time.
Project: Using an analogous color scheme you will create a composition that demonstrates transition.
Part 1: Due Tuesday, 4/14 by 12 pm
Research, Watch Time Lapse Videos
Watch a series of time lapse videos with a variety of subjects. Choose five (5) time lapse videos to study. Create at least four (4) thumb nail sketches per video. The thumbnail is a series of visual notes that track a change in form. These are not full rendering drawing. Simplify the form of the subject. Observe shifts in shape, scale and value. Avoid details.
Upload your thumbnails and video links to your shared folder. List your links in a google doc. Photograph each series of thumbnails. One photo per video, five thumbnails per video. Do not take individual pictures of each thumbnail.
Part 2: Analogous Color Transition Composition
Due Tuesday, 4/14 by 12 pm.
Use origami paper create an analogous color composition that demonstrates transition. Consider the time lapse videos. Use your thumbnails as reference. How can you indicate progression with shifts in color shape, scale, placement and/or form. You are free to alter the origami paper however you see fit. There are no required dimensions; a transition and an analogous color scheme are your only rules.
